Hi, Riley. Thank you for listening and commenting on my work. Your 2 cents are more valuable than you imagine.
Yeah, this fugue is not a fugue we could be impressed of, like any Bach ones. But surely one way to improve compositional techniques is trying to apply what we know in a piece. And fortunately I've known this forum, which has people who want to exchange information and help each other (boy, this sentence was not correctly written, I guess. Sorry, it's not my native language).
One final piece of advise, listen to some classical piano music. Good literary writers have said you improve writing by reading good literature. The same holds true for composition and music literature.
Yeah, I already do that. I love classical piano music and listen to them everyday. I have a vast repertoire in my PC that I like to listen reading their scores too.
A quick look at the composition section tells me you like to be active in discussions, and this is what we wish other members would do, so keep up the good work!
Music is my life. I have no other main plans in future that do not envolve music (remember, I'm studying music at the university). Then, sometimes I see some opinions and "rules" to which I do not agree simply because "things are like this". You know, I dance too (not these party dances, but artistic dance, that you go see in a theater - not ballet), and I see the same discussions like "you cannot do this because people do not!" We simply have reached the conclusion that this is art, and there are no real rules. I have never studied in a music school, but I have some friends that have, and believe, they have a very narrow mind. Simply because they are taught to be so! I once asked a violinist friend of mine (very skillful, by the way) if he had already tried to improvise on his violin. He simply said "No, because my teachers have never told me to do so..." Shocked! If we all try to fit in the same format, we'll not really have development in music. BE CAREFUL, I'm not saying anarchistly that we don't have to know all these things! Of course not! I am now, for example, studying Schoenberg's "Harmony", "Preliminary exercices in couterpoint" and "Fundamentals of music composition". I want to learn all these subjects, and I believe we need to. However, being stuck in the same patterns will difficult innovation and evolution.
I believe my speech was very radical, but please don't interprete like this.
